YELLOWKNIFE, NT – Beer in Canada reports that a brewpub has been proposed for the Old Town area of Yellowknife.
As originally reported by both CBC.ca and HQYellowknife.com, the business is being pitched by local architect Wayne Guy and business partners Fletcher and Miranda Stevens, and is planned to be located in a building owned by Guy that previously housed a dinosaur museum.
The brewpub will require approval from the Yellowknife Municipal Services Committee in a meeting scheduled to be held today, as well as a liquor license that will allow for public consultation.
If approved, the partners hope to have the brewery and pub operational by this summer, marking the first time that beer will be commercially brewed in the Northwest Territories since the closure of the short-lived Bush Pilot’s Brew Pub almost two decades ago.
